“In a style reminiscent of Sandra Cisnero’s “The House on Mango Street” Pandora Poikolos shows us all that Anya is thinking. This book is about LIFE – the ups, the downs, the people we encounter, the dreams we have and the world around us.”

Excuse Me, My Brains Have Stepped Out
by Pandora Poikilos
Anya Michaels is having the time of her life. She has the man of her dreams by her side. She has graduated at the top of her class. She has the job others were lining up for. Between late night drinks at her favourite bar and fancy dinners at the most expensive restaurants, she has a string of adoring friends. Everything changes when she hears the dreaded words, “You are sick.”
Being diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder, her world starts to fall apart, one piece at a time. Now dumped, her four year relationship is nothing but a memory filled with pictures, thoughts and a very broken heart. Her job becomes an even further challenge as she tries to hide her condition. Her friends suddenly have more important things to do, what is a party without a party girl? Perfect could not crumble any faster.
Soon, caught between situations, people and pieces of life that she never dreamed of planning for herself, Anya begins to wonder if her brain condition is all that bad. As she absorbs the changes in her life and realization sets in, she begins to wonder if she is the only one saying: Excuse Me, My Brains Have Stepped Out.

This is a book that some will find difficult, some won’t finish, but which cannot fail to move those who take the trouble to accompany Anya on her journey, against seemingly impossible odds, toward a destination that will leave them in a better place than they started. Uplifting and inspiring. – S.K. Allison
Without the cloy of drama, and with a clear, steady voice, Pandora Poikilos has been writing about her journey through life in the face of daunting challenges. If you’d enjoy a graceful author who’s worked her way out of the chaos and frailty of the human condition, I think you won’t need to look any farther. – Obscure Writer
